How To Prepare For Your First Yacht Charter Party

Are you looking for a reason to party? Well, who needs a reason when you’ve been invited to a yacht charter party in Fort Lauderdale with your friends? It’s sure to be a memorable experience that you’ll cherish for a lifetime.

If you’re feeling unsure about attending your first yacht rental party, don’t worry! Here are some tips to help you prepare:

#1. The Departure

Confirm your attendance and take note of the date, time, and any suggested attire or theme mentioned. Typically chartering a yacht in Fort Lauderdale is a punctual affair and any departure delays will shorten the time you and your friends will be able to enjoy being on the water.

#2. Your Attire

Comfortable and loose-fitting clothing is ideal for a yacht charter party, but make sure you dress up a bit too if it’s appropriate for the occasion. It’s not recommended to wear jeans, but men can opt for linen shirts and khaki pants or shorts, while jumpsuits or sundresses are a great option for women. Don’t forget the statement sunglasses, and make sure to wear comfortable flats or boat shoes and to leave the heels at home! 

#3. Medications and More

If you’re prone to seasickness, be sure to bring medication, but it’s rare to experience seasickness while cruising South Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway. Also, bring plenty of sunscreen to protect your skin from prolonged exposure to UV rays.

#4. Yacht Etiquette

Listen to the captain and respect the crew. Wait for instructions or ask the host before using any facilities or activities onboard the yacht, and adhere to any in-house rules, such as no smoking. Be mindful of other chartered yachts or boats nearby and avoid creating an unpleasant environment. Everyone wants to enjoy their time on the water! 

#5. Food and Beverages

While some yacht charters provide full catering, others allow guests to bring their own food and drinks aboard, so you’ll want to ask your host what to expect. Depending on the length of your charter and the time of day of your party, make sure there’ll be plenty of water and other beverages available to stay hydrated! Snacks, meals, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages are generally all welcome on the yacht to ensure your day is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

#6. Enjoy Your Private Yacht Charter

After all the preparation it’s now time to have fun. Take lots of photos, and make memories that will last a lifetime! Take care with food and drinks to avoid spillage, and drink responsibly to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
